So, how do you actually sell Britain's strongest beer in a pub? You shout "Anybody up for a Tokyo* tasting session? £2 each" It's handy to have a few people about who you know want to try it but don't want to shell out for a whole bottle. That's what we did last night, it worked a treat. Although Lucy (2nd from left) decided that it tasted better mixed with Fentiman's Victorian Lemonade. Saruman (2nd from the right) tried the resultant shandy, and although he felt it was sacrilege to do such a thing claimed the drink was quite tasty.
I didn't seem to have any increased alcohol fuelled disorder as a result of the Tokyo*, although Washy (first on left) is trying his hardest to be banned, but that's par for the course. I suspect the Caol Ila1 was having a significantly greater effect on proceedings.
Grand night - and everybody will probably be back tonight. Better book the bouncers.
1This one is a hand bottled, done by the nice people at Bladnoch. 29yr 55.5% cask strength. Very nice indeed, smoky and peaty..mmmmm. If you join their forum there are some damn fine deals to be had.
